SUMACH, Dr. Alexander

A Treasury Of Hashish

Toronto: Stoneworks Publishing, 1976

Square 8vo, pp. 154. Original stiff paper wrappers. Small scuff to top corner, otherwise a fine copy.

First edition.
An entertaining history of hash, its origins, uses (both medical and not), effects, identification, legal status, appearances in literature, and so on. Did you know the word 'ganja' is of Bengali derivation? That in Iran weed is called 'bangi'? That Alexandre Dumas wrote The Count of Monte Cristo while completely off his tits?
Reprinted in 1994, but the first edition is quite elusive.
